Coaches' timeouts are worse. Basketball teams should get one, full stop.
This is a reminder (a final reminder from me) to fill out those brackets by 12:20 PM tomorrow afternoon for the ESPN Tourny Challenge MGoBlog Community group. A link to the group is provided below. If you would like to join the group, just sign up and fill out a bracket. I could have sworn there was a mod who said if enough people signed up there could be some MGoPoints given to the winner. ;-)
Group Name: MGoBlog
Password: WeOn! (no spaces, capitilize the W and the O, exclamation point)

Axe Body spray has a tremendous new promotion where they plan to send someone to space. As part of this campaign they are showing a commercial of their Axe Spaceman getting more attention than Bryce Drew after he hits the game winner to get Valparaiso a huge upset over (what team was it?) in the NCAA tournament in the late 90s.
Valpo is back in the tourney against MSU and Axe is supporting the Crusaders hard on Twitter with promoted Tweets and some funny responses to MSU basketball.
Twitter.com/axe has the commercial and latest tweets but the best are the responses to the official MSU basketball tweets. Axe keeps responding and trolling them in great fashion.
Syracuse University basketball has been under NCAA investigation for a period of “years,” a source with knowledge of the case told CBSSports.com.
That source said the school has received a letter of preliminary inquiry from the NCAA.
The specific nature of the alleged violations was not disclosed by the source but the transgressions were described as both major and wide-ranging in nature. The investigation also encompasses football but is believed to primarily involve basketball. Syracuse has been penalized only once by the NCAA in a major case according to the association's legislative database. That was in 1992 in a case that focused on extra benefits in the basketball program.
Seven Catholic schools that split have added Butler, Creighton, and Xavier to the mix. Effective July 1st of this year. The next step would be 12, and while nothing is official, St. Louis and Dayton are names being tossed around.
Speaking of injuries any update on THJ's ankle? I know he finished the game but if he had any set backs or does anyone even know anyhting about it?
